Paper has many trends it will travel and one popular trend has been the colorful translucent paper. This unique paper is usually added to an existing project as an overlay or accent. Unfortunately this type of paper has shown a trend decline over the past years. As all can expect, the demand drives the market and since this demand as significantly reduce, so has the making of this paper. One line strongly affected by this industry change has been CT Translucent color choices. As we work on keeping demanding products on our floor for quick ship, this product’s “color selections” are being sold out with no replenish date for now. Currently all colors are on sale and will remain on clearance until all stock has been depleted.
We will continue to stock and replenish most of the Clear / White Translucent paper including the VERY popular Inkjet Translucent.
Another trend we have noticed is Color Shimmer/Metallic Papers coupled with the white translucent papers. Presuming since the shimmer papers have expanded to lovely palette, most customers have decided to bring the color to their projects with heavy card stock and compliment with these neutral translucent papers.
However you best create, we wish you the most enjoyment and look forward to seeing your magnificent works of art!!
Parchtone Paper and Envelopes are being re-organized on our floor. We are moving out all of the standard 65lb Cover and 60lb Text so we can concentrate on stocking our high quality weights. We will focus on 4 colors: Aged, Gunmetal, Natural and White with our weights of text paper being 80lb Text (120gsm) and our card stock paper stocked in 80lb Cover. Additionally, our envelope stock is transitioning to 80lb Text as to allow for a higher quality offering in these 4 parchment shades. We will keep #10, A1 & A6 as a 60lb envelope yet moving A2 & A7 to be 80lb Text, along with introducing A9 envelopes. We hope you enjoy these new offerings of weights which will provide a broader assortment of parchment papers on our site when mixing manufacturer options.

Stardream Metallics offer so many shades to be adored. These jewel toned metallics are almost dreamy! Once in a while we have to say goodbye to some of our favorite beauties, but it is very uncommon when it comes to this vast line of metallics.
More than 30 beautiful metallic shades
Our latest farewell is a sweet good bye to Serpentine, Malachite and the original shade of Lapis Lazuli. Don’t be alarmed, Lapis Lazuli is still present, it just received a slight face lift and we are calling it the NEW Lapis Lazuli. Also, we at paper-papers are saying good-bye to Emerald for a time. We might be swayed to grab it back up if the demand is high, but as for now, we are letting Emerald rest in peace. (updated 8/2013 ==> Emerald has been revived and now active again – some other colors have be discontinued, View current post Cordenon makes new friends)
This beautiful italian line of metallic papers is laser friendly but does not play nice with inkjet printers. Be sure to know your output when planning a project and printing on Stardream, dry toner options work well along with other professional processes. Wonderful 81 Text and 105 Cover make creative projects pop with quality and brilliance.
We stock folio paper, cut paper and lots of envelopes…check out our broad range of product offerings from the very popular metallic choice, Stardream Metallics!
We are stocking the lovely EURO FLAP envelope in this universal White and Natural. Our envelopes are converted from Brockway 32/80 Felt Finish Papers and present themselves as a rich, quality product. The White shade is not a bright color but more of a milky white. Paper is on our floor to match these envelopes exactly. Hit our live chat if you have any trouble finding the matching paper or card stock.
Some of our older Euro Flaps are now moved to this new stock. Be sure to view all of the Brockway items and their corresponding envelopes.
Cougar A-Size envelopes are offered in a variety of sizes along with two shades and two finishes. With such a vast arrangement to stock, we are not offering the 32/80 Text (118 gsm). We recommend using 28/70 (104 gsm) as this is offered in all sizes and is only slightly different. Cougar envelopes are and have been a popular product for years and offered great quality at reasonable prices.
If you were using 32/80 smooth finish, transitioning to 28/70 vellum finish has an average caliper difference that is minimal. Actually, when looking up the average caliper, these have the same results, 28/70 vellum average caliper 6.0 and 32/80 smooth average caliper 5.9 – This is only addressing the ‘bulk’ factor – but possibly that may have been your only concern. You can view all the Cougar Envelopes we offer with one simple click. Also, before switching grades, view our paper weight chart for Cougar Paper to best determine your project needs.
If you are considering a grade transition and your project requires smooth finish, yet thicker, we are suggesting Neenah Classic Crest Solar White or Natural. We do offer all A-Sizes with 32/80 smooth finish.
Mohawk VIA Vellum MARIGOLD was discontinued 2012 by Mohawk Paper. We recommend VIA Vellum Sunflower as a nice option. View all Mohawk VIA paper and envelopes
A2 and A7 MARIGOLD Envelopes are no longer stocked,
we recommend A2 SUNFLOWER Envelopes and A7 SUNFLOWER Envelopes
Are you looking for VIA TAN Envelopes? These have been discontinued, but our site recommendation would be Basis LIGHT BROWN
